I’m an expat American (Gringo = fair game to anyone). I am very pleased to recommend Rosa Van Sant as a real estate agent. While visiting family, I was pleased with the DR and wanted to purchase property here. She was my agent. That was the best thing that could have happened to me. As I have gained more experience I realize now how much more that was important.
She demonstrated vast patience as she found one property after another which I didn’t buy. Even so she was always positive and upbeat. More than that she explained the local customs, circumstances, legal requirements, locations and so on to really educate me about what I was doing. (Saved me.) When I finally purchased some land for future building she was MY agent. She kept everything going right for ME. She vigorously protected my interests throughout the process. I could go on. I’m one of the fortunate international buyers that came out well. I have known of nightmares suffered by other foreign buyers.
Bottom line? I would have Rosa help me if I were to look again. She is honest, reliable, knowledgeable, and very patient. It doesn’t get any better.
